Just Another Pretty Face?

Scottish Highland cattle are reportedly one of the oldest cattle breeds in the world, possibly dating back to the 6th century.  In their home country of Scotland, these cattle regularly face the brunt of North Atlantic storms and severe winter climate, making it a tough and hardy breed.  Here in the states they are most commonly viewed as a hobby breed.  With long, shaggy hair and long horns, they don’t fit the mold for typical cattle in the US landscape, but I enjoy seeing them scattered across my travels.  This photo was taken on a farm east of Billings, Montana, but our lack of winter may have her wishing for a haircut!

The Psalmist reminds us that we are only temporary stewards of the Lord’s many creations, “For every beast of the forest is Mine, and the cattle upon a thousand hills.” Psalms 50:10
